Portrayed by Owen Hughes
Occupation Head cook
Status Deceased
Appearance(s) Sleepaway Camp

Artie was the head cook at Camp Arawak, where his pedophilia got him scalded alive.


Sleepaway CampEdit

Artie watched the young campers arriving at the start of the summer, leering at them to Ben. When Ronnie brought Angela Baker to the kitchen for something to eat, Artie brought her in the back room and started unbuckling his pants, obviously preparing to molest the teenage girl. This makes him one of the antagonists. Ricky Thomas intervened, angering Artie and threatend Ricky not to tell anybody before he and Angela escaped. Soon thereafter, Angela got her revenge by knocking a chair out from under him while he cooked, pouring a vat of boiling water over his face and hands. Ben found him screaming, and the paramedics soon arrived to take him away. The doctor who arrived told Mel Kostic that Artie would be in severe pain for quite some time. Before or after he got to the hospital, he died.

Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy CampersEdit

Phoebe mentioned Angela boiling Artie when she told her fellow campers about the Camp Arawak murder spree.


Artie is a sexual predator. His desire for Angela is the first sexualization of her in the film, paving the way for Paul to become her knight in shining armor, a stark contrast to Artie.

Behind the ScenesEdit

Artie is last seen screaming on his way to the hospital. Though the attending doctor never said that his life was in danger, it is officially unknown whether or not he survived his severe burns. While Angela's murder spree is mentioned in the following sequels, Artie surviving is never brought up. When Phoebe goes through a list of the murders, she states that he was boiled, perhaps indicating that he died from trauma.

Artie's character is mirrored in Mickey, from Return to Sleepaway Camp, a cook who has an altercation with the protagonist, and is then scalded alive by Angela for it.
